Mrs. Karen Connella

My name is Karen Connella, and I have 25 years of teaching experience, with 22 years of it being at Mitchell.  I earned my teaching credential at California Lutheran University and my Clear credential at CSUN. 

     Teaching is my passion, and my goal is to create learners who pursue excellence in all that they do.  I strive to provide a nurturing and engaging learning environment where my students can reach their full potential.  In addition to teaching academics, I emphasize the importance of integrity, responsibility, and kindness. I have taught first through sixth grade, and I love seeing all of my students grow and become readers, writers, and scholars!

     In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling to new places, going on walks, reading, playing board games, going to the beach, and vacationing in Lake Arrowhead.
